    For all you guys who want a serious 22 mag carrying gun

    I just got my latest issue of American Handgunner and Rock Island is now making a full sized 1911 in 22 Magnum. It holds 14+1 rounds and was reviewed by John Taffin, who gave it a good review. I mean....they all get good reviews it seems like, but if they don't like a gun they just don't review it, so I think it's a good thing that it was reviewed and given a thumbs up.

    22 mag isn't really my thing, but some people really get jazzed about that round so I thought I'd post this up.

    If you look at the pics, it's really not a 1911 per se, there doesn't appear to be a barrel bushing and there are other differences as well, but it's very 1911-like.

    Like the controls, like the sights, like what they say about the trigger. Interesting.

    Still prefer 230 grains.

    Wow, that one looks nice. Up until now I've never seen a 22 mag that I thought I had to have. I wonder what the street price will be.

    Is it a single stack? I have a PMR30 and it's a little picky on ammo but as long as run CCI through the pistol it is flawless, accurate and fun to shoot.

    Looks like the love child of a 1911 and a Beretta 92.

    So does shooting it twice make it a .44?

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    I like... The barrel is pinned, only the slide recips. 14 round. I will wait for the many reviews for this pistol before I venture into ownership...

    It's got a 14-round magazine, and at 40 grains each that's 560 grains. So there ya go.

    The gun has been promised by Rock Island for at least 2 years. When you call the company and ask them will you can get one or when they will be available you just get Vague answers.

    Keltec's PMR30 Offers half of the weight, Twice the capacity, And a price tag at least $250 less then RIA.

    Doesn't seem to be rocket science to me…

    The article alluded to this being the first 'widely available' carry 22 mag. I imagine that was a poke at the unavailability of the Keltec, at least for the first 5 years of it's existence. I even looked for one here locally, way back then, and neither gun shop ever got their hands on one. My interest waned and I'm not really interested anymore, but I don't think it's a bad thing that you have a choice now. Especially if you like carrying something that looks like a 1911 instead of a Star Trek phaser.

    I hear what your saying and yes, it would be nice to have a choice but choice requires at least two items. Since RIA is apparently not producing their gun it's not a choice.

    Even if the RIA suddenly appeared on dealer shelves at half the capacity, twice the weight, and a couple hundred dollars more than the Keltec a lot of people would not consider that much of a choice.

    Don't take me wrong, I own the Keltec and if the mythical RIA appears out of the mist I will certainly buy one. But many others who can't buy both or don't want two .22 magnums may find the RIA not a viable option.
